    The Commitment of Gates County’s Elementary Education is to educate the whole child while providing a safe and nurturing environment that promotes a passion for lifelong learning,respect for self and others, and an appreciation for individual differences.

    We believe that:

    • Every child can and will succeed.
    • All children deserve the opportunity to think, dream, believe, and achieve.
    • The school, home, and community must share responsibility for the needs and development of children while fostering an appreciation for individual differences and cultures.
    • Students are most involved when they participate in decisions that affect them.
    • Differences in learning styles exist, therefore: students have the right to learn in a way that brings them personal success.
    • Students must be assessed in a variety of ways to demonstrate their achievement.
    The function of education embraces the act of preparing our students for living successfully in an ever-changing society by providing academic, social, emotional, physical and character developing skills.
